Next to the hustle and bustle of London's St Pancras station, The Gilbert Scott, Marcus Wareing's latest venture, is one of the hottest restaurants in town. Situated in the recently restored architectural gem that is the Renaissance Hotel, critics and food lovers alike have flocked to this stunning new brasserie and bar. The aim of the menu is simple: to pay tribute to the historic charm of the building with rediscovered and re-imagined traditional British classics. Yorkshire fishcakes, Dorset jugged steak, cock-a-leekie pie, Mrs Beeton's barbecue chicken, London Pride battered cod, gingerbread pudding, Kendal mint cake choc ices and the best lemon drizzle cake you'll ever taste are just some of the 130 recipes in the book. With stunning photography throughout, "The Gilbert Scott Book of British Food" allows you to celebrate these recipes at home, be it for brunch, lunch, a weekend feast, an afternoon baking or a terrific cocktail to ease you into your meal. Above all, it is a glorious tribute to some of Britain's greatest traditional dishes.
